Agile Roadmap Template
Agile development teams use project management software to track their backlogs, but they still benefit from using a high-level agile roadmap to communicate the broader direction of their product. Agile product roadmaps must remain flexible to better respond to emerging opportunities, making it necessary for agile companies to strike the right balance between long-term vision and short-term execution. However, the agile roadmap must also provide a clear direction for the team—at least in the short term. Using this roadmap template can help you craft a more agile-friendly product roadmap that supports your team in their agile goals.
The example above is a timeline-based roadmap that spans a shorter time-horizon, with sprints for time markers. The swimlanes in this roadmap designate features, operations, and UX initiatives. The color-coding on an agile roadmap is often used to represent teams, status, or priority level. In this example, high-priority initiatives are light blue, medium-priority initiatives are dark blue, and low priority initiatives are green. When features span multiple sprints, you can use milestones to visualize each release.
